  1. I am also playing as Liverpool and breached my wage allowance in my 3rd season by around 35 million. I got a fine of around 5 million. Hope this helps
  2. Can this be utilised mid-game at the sametime as a takeover or do you have to click on it right at the start of a save. So for example.... unsackable option not ticked at the start of the game, news of a takeover hits my inbox 2-3 months into the game, by clicking the unsackable option during the takeover, does this guarantee you will not be sacked?
  3. Think i will be joining you on this one if i get the sack after a takeover. Do you need the in-game editor to select this or can you use just the standard editor?
  4. I carried out a little experiment on this last night. Started a career with Norwich, no badges, sunday league experience. Aston Villa as one of my favoured clubs. Anyway get to November i get a news update that a consortium is interested in buying Aston Villa. So i create a new manager again with no badges and sunday league experience and manage Aston Villa, Aston Villa sitting in 19th, I play 4 games holidayed/simulated, Won 1 game out of the 4 sitting in 19th still. Takeover goes through Graham Taylor the new owner lets me keep my job because of something to do with good support from the previous board. What after 4 games and 1 win sitting in 19th. Goes to show that takeovers are a lottery and it doesnt take into consideration your reputation etc.
  5. Yes, but where is the fun in that starting with a rep level that matches the club. Much more fun and more of a challenge building up your low reputation with a big club (Andre Villas-Boas springs to mind). This didnt seem to be an issue in past FM games, well it wasnt for me anyway. If you matched board objectives at the time of takeover you kept your job, FM16 is too unpredictable with these takeovers like a lottery. Clearly we are talking about moving forward here for future FM games.
  6. Without the need of clicking an unsackable option. The more simpler and easier method of doing things would be. If you are matching all board objectives, good squad harmony, good wage budget etc....at the time of a takeover then it should be built into the game that you most certainly will not get sacked after a takeover. Clearly if job security is below stable then it is squeaky bum time. As the chap above said ''People want to manage their favourite clubs, they want to start off at the bottom, and build a reputation, and that is what this game is suppose to allow you to do''
  7. Ummmm....interesting so even reputation doesnt count for much. Lottery as you say
  8. Good two posts above i hear what your saying. I have never had this problem in previous FM games, I have always started with no coaching badges and sunday league experience and have never been sacked after a takeover managing a big club. I am seeing it more and more on this version though, so has something changed in the game dynamics for low reputation managers managing big clubs getting the sack after a takeover despite achieving. OP what was your manager experience and coaching badges? position in the league of sacking? squad harmony? finances?
  9. To say you were fuming is an understatement then. I like you started a Villa save, finished 6th first season, untouchable job status etc..... two failed takeovers. I ended up quitting the save couldnt get into it or be bothered wasting my time rebuilding the squad for the 2nd season in case this happened. I always start my saves with Sunday league experience so im pretty sure the inevitable would of happened. What was your Manager experience?
  10. Check this link mate towards the bottom. I like you started a Villa save, finished 6th first season, untouchable job status etc..... two failed takeovers. I ended up quitting the save couldnt get into it or be bothered wasting my time rebuilding the squad for the 2nd season in case this happened like it did with the guy in the thread below. I always start my saves with Sunday league experience so im pretty sure the inevitable would of happened. Now i look to manage clubs with Chairman status ''Will never leave club of his own volition'' gives you some time without the added interference of possibly getting the sack for achieving/over achieving. http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/439310-FM16-Aston-Villa-F-C-Rear-garde-action-and-scoring-goals-Nothing-major-then/page2
  11. Wow that is harsh. I take it job status was untouchable when this happened then? Was there any negatives with finances/wages, squad harmony?
  12. As for Bolton, the embargo is implemented with the EDT file.. is it possible you have edited or deleted this etc? Good point on the above. Starting to wonder if the real names fix on another site (which i wont discuss on here) has had an effect
  13. http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/454750-dele-alli Read kinrobbos post on the above. After the update Bolton were under a transfer embargo, hence why i didnt start a save with them now they are not. So something has been updated definitely, havent noticed anything on steam but hey ho.
  14. Noticed Bolton are no longer under a transfer embargo, same with a few other teams in the Championship this wasnt the case when patch 16.3 came out? Has the Dele Alli issue been fixed with him choosing England over Nigeria?
